Install common Windows fonts on Linux

I have built Microsofts' common true type core fonts for the web and can be downloaded from here.

Below are the steps I took to build the rpm package on FC5:

  1. Install cabextract.
    # yum --enablerepo=extras install cabextract
  2. Setup your rpm build environment if you have not done so already.
  3. Login as rpmbuild.
    # su - rpmbuild
  4. Dowload the spec file.
    $ cd rpm/SPECS
    $ wget
  5. Build the rpm.
    $ rpmbuild --bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
  6. Install the corefonts and restart xfs as root.
    # rpm -ihv /path/to/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm
    # service xfs restart
